also remember that the search engine list is cached.. it may need a specific amount of time as well to be 're-uped' into the system's list and to be 'seen'.

Well I dunno. I updated the "Taped by" and Transferred by" fields for the recording more than four hours ago and they were immediately visible. However, expanding the recording info on the contributions page indicates that the last update was some 13 hours ago and was done by the contribution engine:

Seems inconsistent.

Well - you are talking about 3 different processes:

1. Updating the Metadata.
2. Log from the Contribution Engine (that stuff you pasted above).
3. Updating the Search Engine.

The CE log does not change after the item goes into the collection and will not change if you edit the metadata - however, if you are the contributor there is a section on the details page that lets you know the last time the item metadata was edited and by whom - this is under the "Transferred By" field (which is now spelled correctly - thanks Tracey!)

Your recording is now in Search Engine. Updating the metadata "looks" instantaneous, but really takes 5-10 minutes before it gets written to the meta.xml file in the show directory. Adding items to the search engine with the Edit > Update method has taken hours in my experience, but usually works when I check on it the next day.
